Brownielocks' Holidays & Fun For Everyone!  ©

Sours: https://www.brownielocks.com/NativeAmericanHoroscope.html

A totem is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol of a tribe, clan, family or individual. Some Native American tribe&#;s tradition provides that each person is connected with nine different animals that will accompany him or her through life, acting as guides.

Different animal guides, also called spirit guides and/or power animals, come in and out of our lives depending on the direction that we are headed and the tasks that need to be completed along our journey.

These tribe&#;s beliefs further explain that a totem animal is one that is with you for life, both in the physical and spiritual world. Though people may identify with different animal guides throughout their lifetimes, it is this one totem animal that acts as the main guardian spirit.

With this one animal, a connection is shared, either through an interest in the animal, characteristics, dreams, or other interactions.

This Animal Guide offers power and wisdom to the individual when they &#;communicate” with it, conveying their respect and trust. This does not necessarily mean that he or she has actually touched or spent time with this animal, more that, they are open to learning its lessons.

For some, knowing what is their totem animal is almost an innate process. It’s as if they’ve always known, inexplicably drawn to the animal or having a special feeling for the animal’s energy. For others, they wonder how to tell what their animal totem is.

Here are some questions to ask yourself if you’re wondering what your animal totem is:

  • Have you ever felt drawn to one animal or another without being able to explain why? This could be any type of living creature, including birds and insects.
  • Does a certain kind of animal consistently appear in your life? This doesn’t necessarily have to be a physical appearance, it could be represented in other ways, such as receiving card and letters with the same animal pictured over and over, unexplainable dreams of a particular animal, watching television and seeing the same animal featured time and time again, or, actually having the animal show up.
  • When you go to the zoo, a park, wildlife area, or forest, what are you most interested in seeing?
  • Are there any animals that you find to be extremely frightening or intriguing?
  • Is there a particular animal that you see frequently when you’re out in nature?
  • Have you ever been bitten or attacked by an animal?
  • Have you ever had a recurring dream about a certain animal or a dream from childhood that you have never been able to forget?
  • Are you drawn to figurines or paintings of a specific animal?

If you still need more help, ask the Universe for a dream or a vision to see if anything comes up. Also ask the animal to show itself to you and pay attention to what you begin to see from all sources &#; television, books, billboards &#; it doesn&#;t have to be the actual animal. Does one animal begin to appear frequently?

Native American Symbols, TotemsOne thing to remember is that you cannot choose your totem spirit, rather it chooses or has already chosen you. The Spirit chooses you and they decide to whom they will reveal themselves. Much of the process of identifying your spirit animal is paying attention to both your past and your present. It is a process of developing your inner knowledge and spiritual understanding.

The totem itself is a symbol that represents this animal. This could be any number of items &#; a crest, a totem pole, an emblem, a small figurine, and engraved or painted stone, or anything else that depicts your animal guide.

Note:Native American totems did not include all of the animals listed below, as many of these creatures did not exist in North America; or, in some cases, not at all (such as the unicorn.) However; the concept of &#;totems,&#; by whatever name they were called, have been known throughout the world since the earliest days of Greek Mythology. Though the unicorn and dragon are generally accepted as centuries old mythical creatures of Europeans, pictures of these fabled animals have been found in Native American tapestries and pictographs. It is also worth noting that not all Native American tribes held these beliefs.

Native American Animal Signs: Meanings for Native Zodiac Wisdom

Exploring Native American Animal Symbols And Zodiac Signs: Native American animal symbols can encompass just about all the animals, and their symbolic representation to the many tribes of the Americas. To narrow down the focus a bit, this page is devoted to birth animals – or zodiac animals. Many Native American cultures have the belief that a person is assigned an animal upon the time of birth.

Another source of Native American animal symbols is the Animal Totems is a link to a page on this website. Below are interpreted Native American symbols of the zodiac and the characteristics for each one.

native amercan animal symbols

“The life of an Indian is like the wings of the air. That is why you notice the hawk knows how to get his prey. The Indian is like that. The hawk swoops down on its prey; so does the Indian. In his lament, he is like an animal. For instance, the coyote is sly; so is the Indian. The eagle is the same. That is why the Indian is always feathered up; he is a relative to the wings of the air.”

~ Black Elk, Oglala Sioux Holy Man

Native American Animal Zodiac

Native American Animal Symbols and Zodiac Sign Meanings

Otter
January 20 – February 18

A little quirky, and unorthodox, the Otter is a hard one to figure sometimes. Perceived as unconventional, Otter methods aren’t the first to be chosen to get the job done. This is a big mistake on the part of others – because although unconventional, the Otter’s methods are usually quite effective. Yes, the Otter has an unusual way of looking at things, but he/she is equipped with a brilliant imagination and intelligence, allowing him/her an edge over everyone else. Often very perceptive and intuitive, the Otter makes a very good friend, and can be very attentive. In a nurturing environment, the Otter is sensitive, sympathetic, courageous, loyal and honest. Left to his/her own devices, the Otter can be unscrupulous, lewd, rebellious, and isolated. You might also want to read my page on Symbolic Otter Meanings.

Wolf
February 19 – March 20

Deeply emotional, and wholly passionate, the Wolf is the lover of the zodiac in both the physical and philosophical sense of the word. The Wolf understands that all we need is love, and is fully capable of providing it. Juxtaposed with his/her fierce independence – this Native American animal symbol is a bit of a contradiction in terms. Needing his/her freedom, yet still being quite gentle and compassionate – we get the picture of the “lone wolf” with this sign. In a nurturing environment, the Wolf is intensely passionate, generous, deeply affectionate, and gentle. Left to his/her own devices the Wolf can become impractical, recalcitrant, obsessive, and vindictive. You might also want to read my page on Symbolic Wolf Meanings here.

Hawk
March 21 – April 19

A natural-born leader, the Hawk can always be looked upon for clear judgment in sticky situations. Furthermore, the characteristics for this Native American animal symbol never wastes time, rather he/she strikes while the iron is hot, and takes action in what must be done. Ever persistent, and always taking the initiative, the Hawk is a gem of a personality to have for projects or team sports. The Hawk can be a little on the conceited side – but he/she is usually right in his/her opinions – so a little arrogance is understood. In a supportive environment, the Hawk “soars” in his/her ability to maintain passion and fire in relationships, and always remaining compassionate. Left to his/her own devices, the Falcon can be vain, rude, intolerant, impatient, and over-sensitive. See more information on  Symbolic Hawk Meanings here.

Beaver
April 20 – May 20

Take charge, adapt, overcome – this is the Beaver motto. Mostly business, the Beaver gets the job at hand done with maximum efficiency and aplomb. Strategic, and cunning the Beaver is a force to be reckoned with in matters of business and combat. One might also think twice about engaging the Beaver in a match of wits – as his/her mental acuity is razor sharp. The Beaver has everything going for him/her – however tendencies toward “my way or the highway” get them in trouble. Yes, they are usually right, but the bearer of this Native American animal symbol may need to work on tact. In a nurturing environment, the Beaver can be compassionate, generous, helpful, and loyal. Left to his/her own devices the Beaver can be nervous, cowardly, possessive, arrogant, and over-demanding. Learn more about the Beaver totem here. You might also want to read my page on Symbolic Beaver Meanings here.

Stag/Deer
May 21 – June 20

Native American Zodiac & Astrology Overview

The Native American Zodiac & Astrology &#;system&#; bears many similarities to other celestial systems of predicting our present and future.

In its simplest form, Astrology looks to the placement of the stars, moon and sun at the time of your birth as a pattern that illustrates your unique, essential being including on a spiritual level. Metaphysical practitioners use the phrase, “as above, so below” to express this principle.

We are tied to the earth and the stars, and all living things in a sacred network. Native American Astrology helps us become more aware of those connections, supports learning to trust our instincts and acts as a system for personal growth.

The ultimate intention in this astrological system is giving people a greater understanding of their overall purpose and contracts that you accepted as a spiritual being in this world.

Birth is a very real type of initiation.

From that day forward knowing what you’re here to learn makes a great difference in decision making.

This original purpose is an archetype written in our DNA and it not only affects us personally but as a collective consciousness. In other words, the Native American Zodiac is a means of claiming your responsibility in this life while preparing for the next turn on the wheel of reincarnation.

That might at first sound a little sullen but its not. Native Americans see life as a never ending wheel that each soul travels to their destiny.

As some might say, when one door closes another opens along with yet more opportunities for self-actualization. In other words folks, it truly is the journey not the destination that matters.

How much influence your Native American Zodiac Sign has in your life and how it manifests depends heavily on the phase of the moon, the new moon bringing inspiration, the waxing moon exposes emotions, the full moon is spiritually energetic and the waning moon is one of release. Each animal totem has a color affinity, an elemental association and ties to the winds!

There are more correspondences that you can explore as you read the personality & characteristics of the 12 signs.

The practice of Native American Astrology is best taken in small bites. There’s a lot to learn and many layers of insight that peel back like an onion when you give it time and attention.

Those wanting a deep understanding of Nature’s rhythms and mysteries would do well to embark on this intricate journey. It will change your relationship with self, others, the Earth and the universe itself.

Hint: consider keeping a journal for those “ah ha” moments in your studies. As you grow and learn, you’ll find the lessons you integrate from the Native American Zodiac become more profound. Trust your Spirit Animal as a cherished friend and guide in the journey.

This astrological system is very detailed. You won’t learn everything overnight – and what I&#;ve provided here is a rather cursory overview just to give you a sense of the whole construct. So take a deep breath and keep reading!

Native American Zodiac & Astrology vs Western Astrology

Most people are familiar with traditional Western astrology, but Native American astrology is a far cry from what you see in the daily the newspaper.

Where Solar astrology generally focus on the 12 signs of the zodiac, in this system the whole of a person’s chart is considered. Yes, the sun plays a role but so do numerous other pieces of data that provides a 3 dimensional view of our soul’s intention.

Native American systems do not elevate one sign or archetype over another. They are all important to understanding the big picture.

These archetypes of human potential come in all sizes and colors with a full range of possibilities!

Your Native American Zodiac chart is, for all intent, akin to the script of your life. This in no way, however, limits the concept of free will. Don’t worry there is plenty of room for ad-libbing.

Think of your chart like the outlines in a coloring book – you bring the crayons you wish and can even scribble outside the lines!

Native American Zodiac & Astrology origins and history

In ancient times, people depended heavily on signs and omens from the world around them including the stars.

Often it fell to a Medicine Person or Shaman to interpret these signs, as is the role of wise people, healers, magicians and walkers between the worlds (psychics, mediums, clairvoyants, etc).

The ancients paid very close attention to the sky and land, trusting in repeated patterns to tell them when to plant, harvest, travel etc. In many ways this tradition is like a modern road map and Farmer’s Almanac blended together.

The pattern of the stars had significance in Native American myths and fables, which also connected to their culture and beliefs. By extension, the Zodiac also uses those stories to illustrate deeper truths.

And although you will have more than just one animal alliance, these birth animals are always available to share wisdom and help you with your evolutional growth in this lifetime. &#;
― Avia Venefica

The Native American tribes share a spiritual connection with nature, in the sense that nature plays a crucial role in deciphering the cosmos that consists of highly enigmatic elements in it. The Algonquin stance, &#;your birth date is the first drum beat of a fantastic ceremonial dance of life&#;, just shows how the Native Americans associate life with a celebration, they celebrate and honor everything that breathes, be it human or animal. They observed the flora and the fauna, their strengths, their weaknesses, and sought powers from them to perform difficult tasks. For example, because a bat has the ability to see clearly in the dark, they (Native Americans) invoked its spirit to gain the power to see their prey clearly during a hunt in the night.

When it comes to astrology, an animal totem was assigned to those born within a given time period. It is believed that these people share the traits of the animal symbol they are born under. The following section explains these zodiac animals, along with their western interpretation and meaning. Find out which is your birth animal!

An Overview on the Different Native American Zodiac Animal Symbols

Like Western astrology, the Native American astrology also has 12 animal totems. In their astrological chart, one year is divided into four important sections (or clans)―North Wind (Winter), East Wind (Spring), South Wind (Summer), and West Wind (Fall). Each clan consists of three zodiac animals. The following chart will give you a quick view at the months and dates that divide these signs, and also tell you of your animal totem according to your birth date.

Native American zodiac chart

Otter (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

Otter

Element: Air
Western Zodiac: Aquarius ♒
Color(s): Silver
Stone/Mineral: Silver or Turquoise
Traits: Unconventional, Independent, Friendly
Compatible With: Deer, Raven, Falcon

The otter is an unconventional creature which behaves differently than its closest kin, the weasel. The traits of those born under this symbol are quite similar to this totem. They are highly creative, friendly, independent, and tend to view life in a way that is seldom understood by others. They are intuitive beings and tend to look beyond what may meet the eye. They are not afraid to experiment and are highly witty by nature. Because of this, many people may take them to be stupid or foolish, only to realize that their eccentricity got them to the right path.

Otters can be great friends and companions, and they will always pay heed to their friends&#; needs with sensitivity and undivided attention. However, on the flip side, they can become somewhat rebellious, unscrupulous, and detached from society, especially if their out-of-the box perception fails to be compatible with others. The detachment gives them a sort of freedom that they crave for when it comes to living life on their own terms.

Wolf (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

Wolf

Element: Air and Water
Western Zodiac: Pisces ♓
Color(s): Blue-green
Stone/Mineral: Turquoise or Jade
Traits: Sensitive, Intuitive, Generous
Compatible With: Bear, Woodpecker, Snake

Though we all tend to see the wolf as this lone, dangerous, and deadly creature, the Native Americans see it as a generous and caring creature. Those belonging to this clan are highly sensitive to their surrounding environment, like the wolf. Every positive or negative energy will affect them, which is why they are likely to lose themselves in the joy or troubles of others. A wolf is also a hunter who is strongly attached to its pack. Similarly, the bearers of this animal totem tend to hunt for spiritual fulfillment and the meaning of life. They belong to their pack, and a loss of any of its member, or their permanent lover, can prove to be devastating for them.

Wolves will sacrifice themselves to fulfill your needs. Their gentleness and generosity will make life seem to be a lovable journey indeed! However, if they suffer from an emotional blow, which they often do, these people can become extremely revengeful, resistant to change or authority, and impractical. They need someone to keep their head straight and their demeanor composed during turbulent times, else they can become highly vicious and wild.

Falcon (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

Falcon

Element: Fire
Western Zodiac: Aries ♈
Color(s): Yellow, Green
Stone/Mineral: Opal
Traits: Powerful, Spontaneous, Sapient
Compatible With: Salmon, Owl

A falcon is viewed as the fearless leader in Native American astrology. This creature is powerful, clear-eyed, and is not afraid of the turbulent winds of life. What makes the members of this clan born leaders is their ability to clearly look through the fogginess of a situation. They can weigh the pros and cons of any undertaking and are highly efficacious when it comes to getting a clear shot at their aim. They are persistent, stubborn, and confident. They will not hesitate to initiate anything that seems right to them. They are the perfect role models for other signs that are hesitant and have doubts about their judgment. They are also the ones who instill passion and fire in the environment.

On the negative side, falcons tend to be quite self-opinionated at times, and who could blame them, for they are gifted in this area. Also, if they fail to find a positive environment where their actions are appreciated, these people tend to become highly impatient, rude, adamant, and over-sensitive, which may not prove to be fruitful in the long run, especially when it comes to their personal relationships.

Beaver (Apr 20 to May 20)

Beaver

Element: Fire and Air
Western Zodiac: Taurus ♉
Color(s): Yellow, Blue
Stone/Mineral: Jasper, Hematite
Traits: Practical, Hardworking, Reliable
